Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley is reminding her parliamentary and Cabinet colleagues that the people must come first, and they must spend time with them.

Speaking to the party faithful Sunday night at St Leonard’s Boys’ School after businessman Chris Gibbs won a nomination race in the St Michael West branch, she said the 81-year-old Barbados Labour Party (BLP) had not achieved success because its members were the “masters of policy, or that we can lead and handle management issues”.

“We have come to this point first and foremost because we care and because we put people at the centre of what we are doing,” she emphasised.

Stating she opened an early child care school in her St Michael North East constituency before heading to the meeting, the Prime Minister said her constituents, whom she has represented for more than 30 years, made “the difference on a day-to-day basis”. (GBM)
